Corker talking foreign policy at Nashville forum

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Bob Corker is the featured speaker at a foreign policy discussion in Nashville on Thursday.

The event is hosted by the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, which last week named former Gov. Phil Bredesen and former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist as co-chairmen of its Tennessee State Advisory committee.

Corker, a former Chattanooga mayor, is top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He is expected to discuss America's leadership role in the world and its effects on the state's economy, where one in five jobs depends on exports.

Gov. Bill Haslam is scheduled to make opening remarks for the event moderated by David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network.
